We are very excited to announce we will be doing a live backstage twitter chat with the star of the famed, one-woman show, Burq Off!, Nadia Manzoor as she preps for her show in Toronto on March 18-21, 2015.
After a series of sold-out performances in the United States, she is making her way to make bring her successful show to Canada.
In her show, Nadia explores the classic migrant’s’ conflict between the need to better integrate and the religious and cultural demands of their own communities. It is an auto-graphical ‘variety’ show where she explores these issues through 21 different characters including her Pakistani-born father. The show explores conflicts that come up through identity, sexuality and culture that Manzoor herself had to deal with growing up in her Pakistani family.
Written and produced by Manzoor, ‘Burq-Off!’ was one of the biggest selling Off Broadway shows of 2013.
Join us as we tweet live pics from her stage set up in Toronto and as she answers our followers’ questions live on twitter!
When: March March 16 at 8:30-9:30PM EST
